Trump’s Latest Saudi Statement is Hair-Raising

This latest statement from the President is alarming, to say the least.

Weeks ago, Saudi Arabia committed one of the most heinous acts of anti-journalistic revenge of all time with the horrific killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, who had spent much of his career attempting to keep the Saudi Royal Family in check, walked into the Saudi consulate in Turkey weeks ago, never to be seen again.  The details of his demise were abhorrent, with rumors of his body being dismembered alive, and then possibly carried directly through the airpot in Istanbul to be disposed of elsewhere.

A vast majority of the world has accepted that this brazen act was carried out at the behest of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman due to a glut of evidence.

Now, even after being briefed with all of the gory details of Khashoggi’s death, President Trump has apparently sided with Saudi Arabia in the matter, raising more than a few eyebrows.

The president said he understands many lawmakers would like to see a tougher stance against Riyadh “for political or other reasons” but indicated he would only accept suggested punishments “if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America,” a sign he will not approve severe punishments on the kingdom.

Trump’s announcement came in a 638-word statement issued by the White House press office. It contained eight exclamation points and began with the phrases “America First!” and “the world is a very dangerous place!”

He also repeated the Saudi government’s claim that Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and “a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.” But the president said his decision to stand by Saudi Arabia was “in no way based on that” and said he believed “this is an unacceptable and horrible crime.”

The US relationship with Saudi Arabia has long been a complicated one, due to the Middle Eastern nation’s stranglehold on the world oil industry and their consistently abhorrent record of human rights abuses.

Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade. The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal. The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals. Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members. Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.” Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices. This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States. The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to…

Woman Protesting With Antifa Rushes Police, Gets Shoved To The Ground

Published

on

Antifa has a well earned reputation for being an aggressive, radical leftist group that likes to get violent during their demonstrations. Numerous stories have come out over the last several years featuring members of Antifa punching and assaulting conservatives at rallies and other egregious acts. Recently, the group held a demonstration in Seattle where the group dressed in black hoodies, wore masks, and then started taunting police officers. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo, himself a victim of violent, radical protesters, covered the insanity. The police were protecting a group of pro-America demonstrators when some of the militants in attendance took it upon themselves to burn a thin blue line American flag while gathered at the base of the statue of John Harte McGraw, Washington’s second governor. A police officer sprayed the flag and put the fire out. One of the militants present shouted at the cop, “What the f*** is wrong with you?” Yet another yelled, “Suck a d**k, you fat motherf***ers!” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Undeterred, the Antifa faithful grabbed the partially burned flag and lit it on fire again — which made them all very happy, including one woman protesting with Antifa, who stood out due to her lack of a mask and the pink accents with her clothing. At another point amid Antifa’s antics, that same woman decked out in pink tried rushing the cops’ bike line. Video shows her running at the officers and getting shoved backward. Now, most folks at this point would acquire some mental clarity and conclude that messing with cops in this way is a bad idea. But this is Antifa we’re talking about, and given that they tend to get away with a quite a bit, the woman naturally ran at the police line again. Her second attempt to rush cops, however,…
